[cheers and applause] >> thank you. please, sit down. i'm excited and thrilled to be here with barack obama in this election year, i think we are dealing with one of the most mysterious and odd figures ever to occupy the oval office. a few days ago, i received a phone call, i didn't recognize the area code, and the phone call was actually from kenya, and i answered it, and it was actually george obama, the president's half brother. he's the youngest son of barack obama, senior. he said, i'm calling because my 2-year-old son is in the hospital with a serious chest condition, and i wondered if you could help me. i said, are you at the hospital, george? yes. hand the phone to the nurse. he did. the nurse confirmed that george's son is sick with a chest infection. i sold george i would send him a thousand dollars by western union. i said, george, suspect the

that they end up doing. going back to candidate obama four years ago it would be don't ask don't tell. says he wants to stop it and does stop it. category 2, i want to do it but not able to do it, closing guantanamo. category 3 candidate obama said i will carry out 300 drone strikes into pakistan but did it. what do you think -- give me an example of each of these moving forward. what do candidate romney and candidate obama and particularly the third category the unsaid that they have to do. you don't get away without that. you get the tougher question. how might the media do a better job of informing this debate? we seem to have a disconnect between what is said and what is reported and the american public's understanding. it hits a lot of issues whether it is policy or budget trends. recent data showed roughly almost half of americans don't realize we have the world's largest defense budget. a pretty odd phenomena in. >> thanks. in terms of what he will do i think he will reduce the size of the military. the next president. makes it harder to do either one. a president romney would reduce th

nominee making inelegant remarks that the obama campaign quickly poupesed on. meantime, some conservatives are calling for more of the tone from governor romney. all of this comes as two new tracking polls had race at virtual dead heat. gallup has president obama leading by one point. rasmussen has governor romney up two. carl cameron begins our coverage tonight. >> reporter: mitt romney for the first time ever opened rundraiser for cameras today. it was in the works for weeks but comes amid new controversy for remarks caught on tape in may at rundraiser. romney spoke with neil neil cavuto. >> this is a message i am carrying day in and day out. this is the decision about the course of america and where we are going to head. we have seen the president's policies play out over the last four years. >> reporter: romney summoned the press for rare evening news conference to explain. >> it's not elegantly stated. i'll put it that way. >> reporter: on the tape from may, he referred to president's support in the polls. democrats say he dissed half the country. >> the 47% with him believe they are
, ohio, is so important both to president obama and mitt romney campaigning there this afternoon. and there's more of a backdrop than just the early autumn trees. a brand new quinnipiac/cbs "new york times" poll has the president a full ten points ahead of romney in ohio. 53% to 43%. let's begin with cnn white house correspondent dan lothian. >> reporter: joe, even though a new poll shows the president with a double digit lead in ohio, mr. obama continues to push hard in the state. it's a huge priority for the campaign according to a top aide. by our count the president has visited ohio at least 13 times so far this year. this time ahead of early voting, which by the w begins next tuesday. now, today the president was again selling his policies and his record in a state he says has benefitted from the auto bailout. he talked about the thousands of jobs created but also hit china and went after his gop opponent. >> he's been talking tough on china. he says he's going to take the fight to them. he's going to go after these cheaters. and i've got to admit, that message is better tha
-- when obama won the effort and energy that african-americans put into his victory meant that many of the associations which -- this happen before. it changes things. the one thing to remember, we are the only race, only race that the republican party has not pursued. they -- zero. so they get zero response. there's nothing in any of the associations that can be said to lead african-americans, large associations, the fed responded to cited or articulate. the problem is and question was about coalition building. i think that is an important issue. it would be easy to build coalitions if the republican ticket wins because it would be a lot of people who say we don't have to have coalitions that are just response. the problem is that without some of these organizations that were not as responsive as they should've been after obama got into the white house, we cannot maintain without a link left. there are a variety of explanations for the. probably my simplest example, shirley sherard. remember, we immediately conceded to the right wing media spin can you explain who she is. >> the af
. >>> thanks very much. happening now, president obama on this day he has some time to raise money in person, but only time for a phone call with israel's leader. more criticism coming in. we're also looking at the obama administration's evolving attempts to explain who's responsible for the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. is the confusion becoming a political liability? and mitt romney says he has a little secret. you're going to hear him predict he'll win a state most experts think is safely in president obama's column. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we're down to just 39 days until the presidential election. in about 20 minutes the president begins a series of fundraisers right here in washington. those are the only public events on his calendar today. yet this is the same day the president didn't have time for a face-to-face meeting with the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu who's in new york. instead they spoke by phone. here's cnn's white house correspondent dan lothian. dan. >> reporter: wolf, the white house always stresses that the presid

to preventing iran of achieving a nuclear weapon and president obama echoed the themes a couple of days ago. however, i don't think the white house and the u.s. wants to be pushed in to on such a high profile stage battered with making a public ultimatum of red lines to iran so the speech is out. used graphics. netanyahu, former ambassador. when you listen to dozens of speeches in the room, never hurts to have some props with you. they do it in congress a lot. >> i think for a lot of people perhaps it worked. one question is, as he was speaking there were some bursts of applause. i'm curious, were those assembly members? was that public audience? who would that have been? >> reporter: well, we're trying to figure out but i think the delegations, especially here israel and a little bit with the palestinians, brought in extra people with the delegations. they sat way in the back. they may have needed tickets for this and think israel may have felt a little, well, they rallied from the last year when abbas of the palestinians and spoke just before netanyahu had huge standing ovations last year

and saying, "it's disgraceful that the obama administration first response was not to condemn attacks but sympathize with those who wage the attacks." 10:10:00 p.m., the obama administration disavows the cairo embassy statement release some 16 hours earlier in the day. telling politico that the statement, "was not cleared by washington" and does not reflect the views of the united states government. 10:25 p.m. the romney campaign lifts the embargo. sometime after midnight, the original cairo embassy statement and subsequent tweets are removed from the website and the twitter account. 12:09 a.m., obama campaign spokesman e-mails reporters saying the campaign is shocked that governor romney would choose to launch political attack at this time. 5:30 a.m. wednesday the 12. confirmation that the u.s. ambassador to libya, christophersteins and three other staff -- christopher stevens and three other staff members were killed in the benghazi attack. 9:27 a.m. secretary clinton speaks at the state department. >> this was an attack by a small and savage group. >> 10:16 a.m., governor romney ad
cain is a long-time supporter of freedom for libya. he supported president obama's actions to remove gadhafi. he's been critical of how the administration has handled the benghazi aftermath. we spoke earlier today. take a look. wh do you make of the response by the administration in the early days of ambassador rice and now what they're saying now, they're now saying it was a terrorist attack. the president did use the word terror early on in the rose garden, but we heard from ambassador rice, who is saying link this to the video. what do you see as going on? >> i see a fundamental misunderstanding in the larger picture and then on the smaller picture. in the smaller picture they were either incredibly naive or willfully deceiving the american people. i don't know which. but to think an attack of this nature with heavy weapons, mortars, and a very sophisticated direct fire and indirect fire, that somehow that could be the result of a spontaneous demonstration is just impossible for me to understand. >> let me just throw in a third option, though, which supporters of the administration would say,
. president obama and prime minister netanyahu attended the united nations general assembly in new york, but at different times. the white house insisted it was a scheduling issue, not a snub. no meetings, no handshakes. but today a follow-up phone call that a senior administration official told cnn lasted more than 20 minutes. in a statement released by the white house, the conversation included "a range of security issues," the president reaffirmed his commitment to israel security. and the two leaders were in full agreement on preventing iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. prime minister netanyahu has been pressuring the u.s. to lay down a so-called red line on iran that would prompt military action. at the u.n. he used a prop to drive home his point. >> a red line should be drawn right here. before iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment necessary to make a bomb. >> reporter: while some have accused the prime minister of pressuring the president to help gop nominee mitt romney, mr. netanyahu has said his actions are not tied to the u.s. political calendar. the white
been trying to have a campaign that was structured around the idea that barack obama was a nice guy, a good fellow, a good dad and an all-around swell american but that mitt romney thought that he could probably do a better job being president and manager of the economy than he could because they were very worried about not only fending voters had voted for obama in 2008. they didn't want to sound like romney was being a jerk, but they were worried, too, pretty obviously, about what the establishment press was going to say. if romney came out and attacked the first black president on his record and went after him, what would people say? well, that strategy, the latest polling tells us, has not exactly been a bell ringer in ohio. so what you hear from romney is he gets to the must-win. it is an absolutely must-win state for him is this tough new tone, and not only is he talking about the economy as you heard him do there, but guess what's back? the debt clock. they've got the debt clock back, and they're talking a lot about how much president obama's policies cost, they're talking ab

income. president obama's campaign is already bringing romney's taxes back to the forefront releasing this ad in ohio today. >> mitt romney attacked 47% of americans who pay no income tax including veterans, elderly, the disabled. >> my job is not to worry about those people. >> doesn't the president have to worry about everyone? mitt romney paid just 14.1% in taxes last year. he keeps millions in bermuda and the cayman islands, won't release his tax returns before 2010. maybe instead of attacking others on taxes, be romney should come clean on his. >> and this weekend the president made sure to highlight what is by now quite obvious to most americans namely that mitt romney is not strapped for cash. >> and i want to keep your taxes low. but i can afford to pay a little more and mitt romney sure can afford to pay a little bit more. >> meanwhile, the 2011 returns show romney actually paid more than he needed to. romney listed a little over $4 million in charitable donations but only claimed a deduction for $2.25 million. if he had taken the full deduction citizens for tax justice calcu
a statement in which he issued an apology to u.s. president barack obama and the american people for the attack on the embassy today, saying this was unacceptable and ordered yemeni security forces to launch an investigation and prosecute anybody they found involved in this to the full extent of the law. this was quite worrying today. for one reason, the u.s. embassy compound in sanaa is one of the most protected sites. not just in the city of s aanaa, the capital of yemen, but practically in all of the country of yemen. i've been to yemen several times, been to sanaa several times. i've been to the u.s. embassy. this site is not easily accessible to anybody. i spoke to activists in sanaa who said they were watching what was going on from rooftops of nearby buildings. they say they were absolutely shocked that this crowd, marching toward the embassy, was able to get as close as they did to the main gate and then that they were actually able to breach the compound. they were flabbergasted by this. they can't understand how yemen security could allow this to happen. in the ensuing
